The Millers' house explodes
Aired Wednesday, Jun 18 2008 at 20:00 BST on BBC One

Dawn is stunned to have opened the door to May – she tries calling the police, but May pleads with her not to. Over at The Vic, Mickey's looking after Summer but doesn't see his phone ringing – she's desperate to warn him that May's back. Dawn rushes over to The Vic just as the 'Beautiful Baby' competition is about to be drawn and frantically searches for Summer. May, meanwhile, stands in the corner, looking on. Summer comes second and Dawn immediately sweeps her away, while Mickey and Darren follow her when they learn that May's on the loose.

Later, Jase returns from the police station and tells Dawn that they can't do anything as May has done nothing wrong yet, but Dawn tells him to leave (Jase still not realising that May is, in fact, 'Jenny'). While Mickey and Darren are out looking for May, Keith learns of May's return and is annoyed at Jase not being with Dawn.

Mickey's relieved to see Dawn with Summer. Dawn's not only worried about May being back on the scene but is also concerned about a rash on Summer's skin. Dawn and Mickey return home and Dawn takes Summer upstairs. She hears a thud and rushes downstairs, only to find Mickey lying on the floor with blood dripping from his head and May with a crowbar…

Elsewhere, Bianca gets the family involved in her envelope stuffing job; Tanya tries to cheer up Abi – until Abi disappears; Lucy's desperate for her dad to find her and Olly together; Vinnie's 'entertainment' doesn't quite come off the way he'd expected; and Pat realises she must have lost her ring in one of the envelopes.

In the second part of tonight's visit to Albert Square...

Dawn and May stand over Mickey's unconscious body. May talks at Summer, while Dawn tries to get out of the house to take Summer to the hospital due to the rash. May suggests that she look at Summer, but Dawn rushes upstairs. Dawn finally lets May see Summer's rash as she's worried that it could be meningitis. She nearly hands Summer over to May but she sees the pent-up panic in her eyes. May turns nasty and accuses Dawn of being an unfit and undeserving mother.

May proceeds to tell Dawn how she isn't worthy of Summer but there's a knock at the door. It's Masood – he's come to pick up a video. Dawn tries to escape, but May locks her in the bedroom. The keys are in the front door and he's about to enter when Zainab catches him. He posts the keys through the letterbox and leaves. Upstairs, Dawn desperately watches as Masood walks away, while May confesses that she is 'Jenny'. Dawn tells May to go back to her cosy life with Rob, prompting May to slump on the floor, dropping the key.

May confesses that Rob's now with someone else and describes her time in the psychiatric unit. Dawn looks like she feels sorry for May, but instead of letting her hold Summer, she makes a dash for the door. May trips her up, however, and she goes sprawling.

May's busy packing Summer's things, while Dawn's struggling to move as she's hurt her ankle. Dawn finally gives up trying to move and tells May to take Summer - until Mickey comes storming into the room and pushes her out. Mickey's covered in blood and May can be heard trying to force her way in with a crowbar.

May goes up and down the stairs and finds Summer's present – it's a musical box. She unwraps it and starts to sing along. As Mickey goes to call the police, he collapses from excessive blood loss. Downstairs, May continues to sing as she gets out a cigarette. The oven's open. Her thumb's over the lighter. There's a beat - and the Millers' house explodes…

Elsewhere, Bianca's looking for Pat's ring; Ian throws Olly out onto the street; Ian and Lucy come to blows; Bianca gets her hand stuck in the post box; Ian punches Christian; Tanya tells Abi that she made a pact with Mac before he left – all she has to do is text him with the words 'come home' and he'll be back; and Lucy reveals she's moving in with Christian.
